SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - A university student has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing and wounding his roommate in their dormitory on a Northern California campus.

Santa Clara police Lt. Kurt Clarke tells the San Francisco Chronicle that 19-year-old Dillon Kim stabbed his roommate multiple times with a knife early Wednesday at Santa Clara University.

Clarke says Kim then apparently cut himself on the neck. A mug shot of Kim shows a wound wrapping around his neck with stitches.

Police say the victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover. He's a student but his name wasn't released.

Authorities have not released a motive. Kim was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is being held without bail.

Police didn't immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
